    Ahhh functions!!! helpz

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <windows.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <string.h>
    #include <conio.h>
    #include <ctype.h>
    using namespace std;
    
    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    {
        char choice;
        printf("\n");
        Sleep(100);    
        printf("\n");  
        Sleep(100);
        printf("\n");   
        Sleep(100);
        printf("\t\t\t       By Me\n");
        Sleep(100);
        printf("\n");
        Sleep(100);    
        putchar('\n');   
        Sleep(100);
        printf("\t\t\t        [N]ew Game\n");
        printf("\t\t\t        [Q]uit\n");
        Sleep(100);
        printf("\n");
        Sleep(100);
        printf("\n");
        choice=toupper(getch());
        for(;;)
        {
           if(choice=='N')
           {
               game();
               break;       
           }
           if(choice=='Q')
           {
              break;
           }    
        }
        return 0;
    }

    game(); looks like a call to a function to the compiler. You do not have a function named game declared in that code. If you are trying to link it in from another file you have to include it like you did so many other things at the top. There is also room to improve your printf and sleeps.
    Search cout for some ideas. If you feel you 'must' have all of those sleeps, blank lines etc, remember this:
    Any time you type the same thing over and over in your code, there is probably a shorter way.
    Asking a question you already know the answer to might teach you something you did not know...

    if you have made your own header like:

    game.h

    Code:
    #ifndef GAME_H
    #define GAME_H
    
    game(); // whatever the return type and parameters are
    
    #endif
    You have to include it in main like so:

    Code:
    #include "game.h"
    Headers with < > are compiler pre-defined library files. Quoted names " " are programmer defined.
